The faintest hints of smoke, apricot and honey hit the nose, while the palate of this wine shows balmy apricot notes but is otherwise still closed. A quiet harmony of fruit and freshness, body and weight already tells us that this needs time to show its true colors. The wine is is promising and elegant, tart and gentle, fresh and soothing. Right now it glides arrow-like across the palate. Give this time: drink 2028–2030.

German-born but London-based, Anne Krebiehl MW is a freelance wine writer contributing to international wine publications. She also lectures, consults and translates and has helped to make wine in New Zealand, Germany and Italy. She adores acidity in wine and is thus perfectly suited to her Austria/Alsace/England beat. Her particular weaknesses are Pinot Noir, Riesling and traditional-method sparkling wines.
